I know you are all probably tired of hearing it but- I LOVE OATMEAL (have you read Oatmeal Love yet?) One of my favorite oatmeal recipes is this Baked Banana Oatmeal. I was going to make that again this morning but instead I decided to change it up a bit and make these little oatmeal muffins (I call them muffins for lack of better word - they have no flour in them they are more of a muffin shaped baked oatmeal thingamijigy.) I was also hoping that they would make a great handheld snack later in the day when we got hungry but...the kids ate them all this morning (I may have helped a little with that) and I have none left to taste as a snack later (*note to self* add oatmeal to the shopping list so I can
